A few updates on alumni and some new stuff

As we told you over the summer, Ashley W, a Buffalo Jills Cheerleader in 2008 and part of 2009, is now a Carolina TopCat. This past Saturday night, the Panthers hosted the Texans in a preseason matchup aired live on NFL Network and, as luck would have it, Miss Ashley made an appearance on TV as they went to commercial break with 12:30 left in the 2nd quarter. They re-aired the game today and I made sure to record it to share Ashley's appearance.

Also in the world of Buffalo Jills who cheered in 2008, Lonna M, who is finishing up her year-long reign as Miss Buffalo, already has a new title...that of Miss Thousand Islands, having won the crown this past Saturday night. Among other prizes, she won a $1,000 scholarship and a spot in the Miss New York 2013 Pageant next summer which, if she wins, catapults her into the Miss America pageant! Congratulations, Lonna!!

Finally, as you all may be aware, last football season, Buffalo Jills alum Heather C (2009) wrote a column called "Leading The Cheer" for Pro Player Insiders, a sports news organization that really focuses on the positives surrounding sports and the athletes involved. When you consider all the negatives that get reported, this is definitely a much-needed change of pace. Well, Heather's keeping busier these days and hasn't been able to contribute as much and Pro Player Insiders is looking to get even more in depth in their 2nd year of existence. To aid with that, I'll be contributing articles of my own on the Jills, BvB, and whatever else I can help with. The Buffalo Pro Cheer Blog's coverage will go unchanged but there will be select features, including a few Jill of The Week features, that will be expanded upon for Pro Player Insiders.
